JFN's Green Funders Forum is happy to recommend Dayenu's open zoom event "All Our Might: How the Jewish Community Can Invest in a Just, Livable Future" on December 15th at 2 p.m. ET. This program will be a briefing on a new report examining how Jewish institutions can lead the way to a fossil free future. The report offers a roadmap, resources, and recommendations for how to screen out fossil fuels from institutional portfolios, and instead, invest for impact.
